A beautifully preserved colonial house with staff that make you feel at home and do everything to make your stay as easy and hassle free as possible. The rooms are quite small, but filled with lovely furniture. The only problem we encountered was that we were 4 girlfriends travelling together and sharing 2 rooms, however despite knowing this, the hotel allocated 2 double bedded rooms to us. This also happened to another guest staying at the hotel. Breakfast was delicious and it was nice chatting to other guests and getting ideas as to where to visit and eat at night. Our favorite was Villa Shanti which is nearby. We all loved the gift shop too!
